Support Ukraine Written by: Olivia Frymark

On February 24, 2022 Russia began an invasion of Ukraine. Cities have been devastated and a million people had to flee the country. These people had to leave their families, friends, and all belongings behind to get to safety in surrounding regions.

VIDA supports Ukraine and our many Eastern European team members and community. Yards Personal Trainer, Ola Radchenko, is accepting donations for her fellow Ukrainians via Venmo (@ola_right), Amazon, and physical supplies to ship to those in need. All proceeds will be donated to medical and personal humanitarian supplies. For any additional questions, call Ola at (202)-880-9447.
